HARTFORD, Conn. – A judge postponed a sentencing hearing Monday for Lisa Wilson-Foley, the former congressional candidate who pleaded guilty to corruption charges. The deferral will allow Wilson-Foley to travel with her child to a camp in France.

Wilson-Foley, a 2012 Republican candidate for the 5th Congressional District, and her husband, Brian Foley, pleaded guilty in March to charges they illegally paid former Gov. John G. Rowland $35,000 in campaign consulting fees.

Both Foleys were scheduled to be sentenced at a federal court in Bridgeport on Monday afternoon. However, a judge granted a request filed by Wilson-Foley last month to leave the country Wednesday.

“On May 26, 2014, Ms. Wilson-Foley requested permission from her probation officer to travel outside of the United States in order to accompany her child to camp in France from June 25, 2014 until July 2, 2014,” a motion from her lawyer reads.

    So She implicates Rowland, and her reward is a delay in sentencing for a trip to France.

    Wow, isn’t this a bit of what the founders fought England over?

    Seems to me, this article should be put in the dustbin and filed under “SHAME”

    PS, have no use for Rowland les anyone interpret this to be a sympathetic comment about the man.
